About the project

Located on the boundary of the Brisbane City Council Local Government Area (LGA) and the Logan City Council LGA, the Rochedale Road and Priestdale Road intersection has been upgraded from a single lane roundabout to a fully controlled intersection with traffic lights and controlled pedestrian crossing facilities on all approaches to the intersection.

Rochedale Road has been widened to four lanes and dedicated turning lanes were installed on all approaches to the intersection to reduce congestion during peak hour traffic.

To improve connectivity and safety for people walking and riding, signalised crossings have been installed and off-road shared paths constructed on all approaches to the intersection, allowing local students to get to and from school more safely.

On-road cycle lanes have also been installed through the intersection on all approaches, creating safe crossing points for people riding.

The Rochedale Road and Priestdale Road intersection upgrade was funded by the Australian Government as part of the Urban Congestion Fund, with Brisbane City Council’s Better Roads for Brisbane program and Logan City Council’s Major Roads Upgrade program jointly contributing the remaining cost.
